How Early Should You Order Wedding Flowers?

If your wedding is on the horizon, you have likely spent some time thinking about how you would like the celebration to look. Flowers are a major component of your wedding’s aesthetic. Flowers represent your personal tastes, play a big role in the wedding’s theme and provide important color. These flowers will last forever as they will be captured in video and pictures taken during the celebration of your love. The question begs: how early should wedding flowers be ordered?

Key Considerations

Do not haphazardly select a date ahead of your wedding to order flowers for the big day! The last thing you want is a bunch of old and wilting flowers to line your wedding hall, reception area and other spaces within the facility. Brant Florist customers will testify that we have the best possible combination of diverse inventory, great prices and elite customer service. We can accommodate orders placed a year in advance as well as rush orders and anything in between.

It is imperative that you wait until the perfect time to place the order. Try to figure out exactly which types of flowers you desire for your wedding far in advance. Keep in mind that certain flowers might not be available during specific seasons and/or months. Once you have settled on flower types that match the colors and theme of your wedding, it is time to start planning the order date.

Order Timing

It is prudent to place your order wedding flower order between six and nine months ahead of the wedding. For some people, ordering this early might seem way too far ahead of the wedding date. However, placing your order far in advance gives us ample time to plan for your big day. It will also give you a lengthy window to coordinate your wedding apparel and theme to match the color and style of your flowers.

Why Waiting Until the Last Minute is a Mistake

Plenty of brides believe they can wait until the months, weeks and days ahead of their wedding date to place the flower order. This is especially tempting for brides who plan to order flowers online. However, delaying the order until the last minute will negatively impact the wedding planning process. If you put off the order too long, it might prove difficult to procure the appropriate flowers to match the wedding colors and theme.

Give Your Florist at Least a Full Month to Prepare Your Floral Arrangement

At a bare minimum, you should order your wedding flowers at least one month in advance. Give your flower provider at least this amount of time to assemble your arrangements and you will avoid rush charges, guarantee your chosen flowers are available and give the florists enough time to grow specific flowers for your celebration.

Add some colorful flowers to your home or office and you will feel uplifted. Our bodies are searching for sources of light and color in the monochromatic winter months. Flowers infuse much-needed color along with lovely smells that ultimately serve to boost one’s mood.

Exposure to Flowers Lowers Stress Levels

The winter makes it awfully difficult to spend lengthy periods of time in the greater outdoors. Furthermore, much of the outdoor landscape is covered in ice and snow. Most of the plants are lifeless until the spring months. This is precisely why you should bring nature’s beauty indoors. Add some gorgeous flowers to your living or working space and you will feel much better during the depressing winter.

Simply Looking at Flowers Will Suffice

A study performed by Harvard University researchers found that merely looking at flowers in the early morning hours can induce happiness and reduce anxiety. Winter mornings are especially stressful. It seems like it takes forever for the sun to show. The temperatures are egregiously low and the ice is as solid and slippery as ever. Do yourself an enormous favor by looking at a lovely floral arrangement for a few minutes each morning. Though this sounds a bit irreverent, it just might work wonders for your mood.

Even if you don’t want to gaze at flowers each morning, you will still benefit from their presence. Place vibrant flowers in the rooms of your home that your frequent on a regular basis and they will improve your mood and energy. When in doubt, place your flowers in the kitchen as that is where most people spend a considerable portion of the morning.

Flowers can Even Trigger Positive Emotions

Let’s face it: Most of us get a little depressed in the uber-cold winter months. Many suffer from seasonal affect disorder (SAD). Others are stricken with cabin fever. It is quite easy to feel sad, anxious and even angry between December and March. Fret not, flowers can help!

Poinsettias – The Christmas Flower

Christmas is right around the corner, that means it is time to decorate your home and office. One of the best ways to incorporate some Christmas cheer is with a beautiful arrangement of poinsettias. These lovely red, green, pink, white and plum flowers feature the colors of the holiday so don’t be afraid to make them the centerpiece in any room.

Why Poinsettias are the Flower of Christmas

Brant Florist Poinsettia

Poinsettias are officially classified as ornamental shrubs native to South America where they were originally referred to as “Flor de la Noche Buena”. This translates to the “Flower of the Holy Night”. Historians widely agree that the poinsettia was first used as a Christmas decoration in the 1600s when Franciscan monks used poinsettias during their Nativity ceremonies.

Mexican legend states that a young child was traveling to a community Nativity scene and realized that he forgot to bring a gift for Christ. He stopped half way, plucked green blooms from the roadside and carried them the rest of the way. Upon arrival, this child was ribbed by his peers for bringing such a plain gift. However, when the boy placed the blooms at the manger, a glorious red flower shined atop the greenery. This legend is central to the connection between poinsettias and the Christmas celebration.

It is Time to Decorate for the Holiday Season

It won’t be long until Christmas day is here. Seize the opportunity by decorating your home and office now. Implementing Christmas flair in the form of poinsettias and other Christmas decorations makes your home feel that more spirited and cozy.
